Hell Baby and Living Corpse have an extremely similar type of protagonist - someone thrown away by society who just wants to remember where they came from. There are other similarities that would be spoilers to bring up, so just trust me on this one.

Both manga feature a freakish character that's shunned and cast out by their family. They're forced to live in isolation, become more alienated with mankind, and begin to ponder revenge. Both are also quite sad and depressing.

Every single one of the island's inhabitants have placed their faith in... "youth"?! That's right. Apparently leading a life in which one has celebrated youth to its fullest will bring a person the closest they can possibly get to God. Thus each day, all the islanders behave as if they are the main character of their own story... But since transfer student Shuuichi Mugi has realized the truth behind this island, will he be able to avoid all the insane "stories of youth" that happen one after another, and escape from the island of cult followers?!
